Strip by: Colin Foster

Jon: Not counting this bag...
Jon: We're completely out of potato chips.
James A. Garfield: Nobody but radicals have ever accomplished anything in a great crisis.

The author writes:

James A. Garfield was the President of the United States for four months, until a disgruntled speechwriter shot him in his torso. Thanks to the efforts of his doctors, what may have been a non-fatal shooting ended up growing into an infection, killing him eighty days later. Presumably, he enjoyed potato chips.

The portrait used of James A. Garfield here is public domain.
